We need the Holy Spirit to touch our ministries.
So the great things that we are already doing FOR God can be anointed BY God and the things we are doing which are OF God will be done WITH God.
The Holy Spirit is for witnessing and to enable us to reveal Jesus to others as we are filled with Him.
The Holy Spirit is God and when we are filled with God everything else (moaning, complaining etc) gets out of the way because something greater has arrived in the person of the Holy Spirit.
We need to pray with anticipation and desperation just as the disciples did at Pentecost and the Holy Spirit will come, in His own time and in His own way.
We need a 1st hand experience of God - not just watch everyone else doing it.
As we are filled with the Holy Spirit we won't need to struggle or strive to be witnesses anymore because the Holy Spirit will overflow from us and when He does then we are:-
re-positioned and new things begin to happen
able to speak other languages - the languages of those around us. Our work colleagues, those we meet in the pubs and clubs, university lecturers and young people, whoever we think we can't speak to now - we will be able to speak to them as the Holy Spirit enables us.
part of something that attracts a crowd - church becomes interesting and noticed instead of something people see as irrelevant or obsolete
provocative! - people ask 'what does it mean?' - a great question and we have the answer in Jesus!
Without the Holy Spirit we cannot grow, witness, understand, experience joy or do anything to the full measure that God wants us to.
Yet when we are filled with the Holy Spirit all these things can be done and more!
